Surprisingly Good Read!

Maybe that's a strange title to a book, Surprisingly Good Book!  But, I was very pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed and benefited from reading this book.  I am not a diet person nor one who lives a more natural lifestyle, yet there was something about this book that intrigued me.  John Durant has written a very informative book entitled, The Paleo Manifesto. 

I was totally unaware of the paleo diet movement, so I felt it this book would either be liked or I would find it very boring.  I liked it.  So, if you are looking for a book on how to diet, this is not for you.  Durant divided his book into three parts ~

1.  Origins (the past)
2.  Here and Now (the present)
3.  Visions (the future)

I appreciated the way John spoke about diet, not making it sound like a diet and nutrition book.  He opened my eyes to some of my misconceptions about certain foods.  Of course, his comments about the protein and benefits of eating insects will not move me to insect eating (unless that’s the only choice).

I enjoyed sections about fasting, counting calories, eating earth (yum) and exercises.  Even his discussion about thermoregulation was fascinating. 

Overall, if you are interested in learning more about being healthy from a more natural standpoint, this would be a good starting read.  It was not as difficult to read as I expected.  d it!

I received this book free of charge from "Blogging for Books" in return for an honest review.
